WORK.  It has been catching up with me lately.  And sometimes, a little bit too swiftly.

So ano ang latest chismis?! *hagikgik*

We had our overnight press work last Friday over at Repro printers, the first of a series of all-nighters we’d have to pull if we plan on releasing VOX, our college yearbook, in time for graduation.

The thing is, thanks to certain frustrating internal problems with our graduation committee, that feat may be a little bit harder to pull off.  We’ve run into a lot of administrative mishaps the past sem and we’re starting to feel the repercussions now.  I know I shouldn’t really be pointing fingers but let’s just say that some people forgot how huge their responsibilities are.  And now, us in the lower levels of the committee are suffering the consequences of their actions (or lack thereof).

Bitter feelings aside, we pushed on with the creation of our own yearbook.  It’s hard to do something from scratch, especially if you’ve had virtually zero experience on the matter (I’d have to thank my high school days for that, but let’s save that for another blog post).  Nevertheless, we’ve pooled all our creative juices into one long table and threw dabs of paint into the canvas–hoping to produce something that can be considered substantial.

It’s cheap and it’s full of L-O-V-E LOVE

The thing with creating something is that you can’t do it alone.  Even Da Vinci needed a muse.  McCartney was inspired by Lennon’s son Julian in writing Hey Jude.  The process of creation is not a feat that can be achieved by a single person.  It is the collaborative pool of brain power and creativity that drives something into creation.  I’m glad I chose close friends to accompany me through this journey of creation.  They’re very trustworthy and wouldn’t mind taking criticisms for their work, which don’t really need much.  I have a wonderful staff with me and that more than assures me we’re gonna do one heck of a good job.

We’re serious with our work

Just Kidding! =P

To the VOX 2009 Staff, I salute you (I’d give each of you Movado watches if I had the money)!  Let’s get it going and make nostalgic memories even more nostalgic!  =D
